Living Streets

Turin, Italy

With its 890.000 inhabitants and 1.7 million in the metropolitan area, Turin is the capital of the Piemonte Region. The new millennium brought a need for renewal and transformation which has changed the face of the city both environmentally and in terms of its urban planning, boosting its cultural and tourist offer and improving the quality of life, with the aim of making Turin a “Smart City”.

Living Streets in Turin

The aims of Torino Living streets are:

  • to pursue policies and actions that promote smart and sustainable ways to grow and develop;
  • to facilitate territorial assets with citizens associations;
  • to support the transformation of the existing urban areas in living streets: oriented to pedestrians, with multi modal streets, with a vibrant mix of shops, offices, residencies and cultural initiatives.

The local Living Street initiative in Turin will be launched in this area at the end of the preparation phase (1-2 months).
During the experimentation different activities will be organized to gather local residents, retailers, stakeholders with the aim to explore new ways to live and use the public realm. The activities will be co-designed by the residents and main stakeholders during the preparation phase and could be among others: street food lunch, craft workshop with local students, workshops in temporary shops, cultural events, sport activities (bike/walk races), collective services to encourage people to live in the streets. Through videos, articles and the use of local social media, a storytelling will show what will happen.

Why the Campidoglio district?
Borgata Campidoglio is a historical sub-district located in the western part of Turin. This area is a piece of almost unchanged urban space and which preserves the appearance of working-class neighborhood of the end 1800, with mostly low buildings and that often feature large outdoor courtyards. This peculiarity has increased over the years, via a relationship of commonality among the inhabitants and a type of settlement that gives the impression to live in a village in the middle of the city.

The district is rich in associations, public facilities and buildings, there is museum of urban arts with different artistic urban graffiti on facades of private buildings. However, currently it is unfortunately still characterised by congestion and parking problems.

The area defined is already interested by existing projects organised and promoted by different municipal deparments in Torino: innovation projects as Torino Living LAB or initiatives to support the commons with local stakeholders.
